Norway's water has award-winning taste--no, really!  Known miles around for its purity and superior taste, our water won a 2006 Regional Water Taste-off.  Its superb quality has not declined since.  Located just off US 2, Norway Spring is not hard to spot from spring to fall; for months straight, people are nearly constantly streaming in and out of the small area where the spring's fountain is found, filling up bottles and jugs of the summer's sweet relief, at least until it's time to fill them up again.

Available to the public from April to September, the cool, clear artesian spring water bubbles over the man-made rock topping the well from which it comes.  This well was formed in 1903 by a 1,094 foot shaft drilled by the Oliver Mining Company, who were searching for iron ore.
